Prescribed Medication vs. Spinal Manipulation
Patients should be informed of non-pharmacological therapies for low back pain before using riskier, less effective treatments. Manual-thrust manipulation, performed by chiropractic physicians, achieves a greater short-term reduction in pain compared with common medical treatments.

Get at least 30 minutes Of Daily Exercise. Your core muscles, your lower back, and abdominal muscles need to be strong to support your spine and take pressure off your lower back Unfortunately, for most of us our core muscles are rarely used during everyday activities; they need to be toned through specific, targeted exercises. These exercises are simple and can be performed in 20 to 30 minutes as part of a daily routine. Not only will you decrease your risk of obesity and diabetes, you’ll also experience a reduction in back pain, headaches and other neuro-musculoskeletal symptoms. See us at Chiro Effect and let Dr. Jeff Wiederhold set up a simple exercise plan that’s right for you.
Find Time for Yourself. Rest, go on walks, and taking breaks throughout the day can all aide in decreasing stress reduction. Lowering your stress can make your immune system more resilient and decrease chronic pain flare-ups.
Find Joy in the Little Things. Having joy and laughter in your life doesn’t just relieve emotional stress; it also has benefits to your health. Studies show that laughing can stimulate the heart, muscles, and lungs not to mention increasing the release of beneficial endorphins.
Eat Your Greens and Take Your Vitamins. Vegetables like broccoli and kale, which are rich in calcium, can help to decrease your risk of osteoarthritis. Spinach, lentils, and beans are high in magnesium, a vitamin shown to benefit patients with back pain and headaches. Supplements like turmeric aid in decreasing inflammation. Vitamin D helps with mood and studies have shown a link between vitamin d deficiency and autoimmune diseases. Here at Chiro Effect we make sure that all of our supplements are of the highest quality and efficacy.
Quit smoking. Cigarette smoking increases your risk of spinal conditions and arthritis. Smoking cessation has been tied to an improvement in spinal pain. As a bonus, new research shows that smokers who attempt to quit in January are more successful because of the extra motivation the New Year provides.
Lose weight. Carrying extra weight increase the load on your spine and joints, making you more susceptible to poor posture, sciatica, disc herniation, and osteoarthritis.
See a chiropractor. Finally get adjusted. The spine plays a crucial role in your overall health by ensuring that your nervous system is functioning properly. Chiropractors do not only relieve pain from spinal conditions, they can also assist in improving your overall health and wellbeing. Research has shown that chiropractic adjustments reduce the stress hormone cortisol and boost the presence of infection-fighting antibodies in the body, allowing your body to do what god designed it do, which is heal itself.
